To that end, I haven’t stopped making music either. The next album is well underway. As a matter of fact, I just finished a track last night, and I’m very proud of it. The lessons that I’ve been learning on mixing and mastering are coming together very nicely, and this will be reflected on all the new music that I put out.
The rebranding is almost complete. Three of my albums are now at distribution awaiting the artist name change, and after that, it’ll be smooth sailing.
And with that, here is the fifth track, titled Never Let Go, off the new album Eternity.
Here is the fourth track, titled Ocean of Inspiration, off the new album Eternity.
There’s nothing wrong with Father’s Day. Every day should be Father’s Day. And Mother’s Day, for that matter. As everyone celebrates Father’s Day this year, this is instead the first Father’s Day that my Dad is not here. There are probably millions (or billions) of other people who have lost their father and can’t celebrate or even look at this day the same way.
Being able to buy gifts for my Dad and seeing his happiness this day was truly an honor, and one that I will never get to experience again.
Saying that I love my Dad goes way beyond posting his pic on Facebook, or changing my profile pic to a one that includes him, or saying a platonic thing like “Love you Dad/Miss you!” and then going right back to being a careless, disobedient, person who brings no value to society and to mankind.
Instead, honor your Dad, whether he is here or not. By being a good, respectful, upstanding person. A person of character and value. And most importantly, one who offers something positive to society in order to make it a better place. Guaranteed if you do these things, your Dad will always be happy with you. He could ask for no less.
I’ll continue to try to be just that. Happy Father’s Day to my Dad, and all those who have lost theirs.
Continuing with a song a week, here is track 3 from Eternity. The title is You and I.
Here is the second track, titled Rise, off the new album Eternity.
Thought you all might like a listen. This is the first track, titled Prevail, from the new album Eternity.
My discography rename, particularly for the artwork, has been completed to change all my albums away from my pen name (NuwrayN) to my artist name, J. Park. It’s in distribution right now, and should become generally available inside a month.
You can listen to my entire discography here in the meantime.
Dearest fans, my newest album Eternity is finally now available worldwide. Listen to the entire album here.
It is available on iTunes, AmazonMP3, Pandora, Slacker, Tidal, and every web delivery platform you can possibly think of. I will slowly update the site with the direct links to the album.
This is my 6th album professionally released. It was definitely laborious, and I endured much personal loss during this time. It is a reflection of all my experiences, and helps me to share my story to the world…without words.
Again, today is indeed a very special day. I continue to wish happiness to those I love, and a very successful year to come. 대박!
As always, thank you to all my fans and everyone who has listened to my music, supported me, and offered words of encouragement and hope. To affect someone’s life positively through my music is all that can help me through my difficult times.
Two days away from worldwide release, my new album Eternity continues to garner a lot of attention. Based on the questions I received, here are a few facts about it.
- I recorded this entire album from my home studio.
- Every single song was composed on the Yamaha Motif XS 8 synth workstation.
- No sampling was used except what was stock on the synth.
- I mixed and mastered the tracks using Sonar Producer 8.2, still connected to the Motif XS 8.
- There were actually over 20 songs that I made for this album, but only 12 made the cut. I might decided to release some of the ones that didn’t make the cut as free downloads from my site, as well as on YouTube.
I also wanted to comment on my last video post. I got a lot of feedback for the song “My Dad”. It was very overwhelming, and even brought a few people to tears. If I were to ever get nothing but this type of response for my music, I know I’ve done my job.
Thank you all for always supporting me and I hope you all enjoy the music. I’ll post again on release day.
May 30th is a very special day to me. It’s the day that my new album Eternity becomes available worldwide. It’s a time for me to think in retrospect, about all the adversity, sadness, the yearning; yet, it is a time to reflect upon the happiness, the success, and the hope that exists in each one of our lives.
When things settled down, and I got a chance to get back into the studio, time stood still; I realized that my Dad wasn’t with us anymore. So I wrote this song for him. This composition captures the spectrum of raw emotions that I experienced while I created it.
The name of this song is My Dad, which is 우리 아빠 in Korean. It is track 11 off my new album Eternity.
I hope my Dad would be proud of this song. I certainly am, and I hope you will be too.
